I hope everyone here realises that 1.08 cannot be released until this thread has hit 1000 posts.
But I just played it today?
RC13? We are talking about RC14 or even 1.08 final.
no - we're talking blimbs and aircrafts (despite this being the 1.08 thread :/)
Post 952 for great blimb justice.
Also, tis a great beta.
this post is dedicated to the memory of the poor souls that died in testing to bring us 1.08.
You mean like the Nuke Tank Victim Health Fund?
What is a Momory? If it where Momo's live? Hell, what's a Momo?
(in case you can't tell, I'm biding time till #1000)
I have a cunning surprise in store for page 99...
I bet you any amount of money that it's a combo breaker.
I'm guessing it's a lock. who thinks it's a lock?
He has to do it you know. Lock at 999 posts I mean. If he doesn't - the forums will implode causing a temporal rift in time-space continuum that will create a paradox which will end existance as we know it.
I have 20 posts a page, so there's a way to go for me, better hold off.
As something more meaningful, 1.08 is pretty ready. Screw the extra models, loading screens and cammos. That's what 1.085 is for. I don't know what 1.09 is for, is it the completed game sans airplanes?
Everything is done enough, weapons are balanced enough, scout has enough usefulness, the maps look pretty enough. How long have we been testing, two months? We need to get this out before TF2. we need to get this out before 1.07 turns a year old (is it too late?)
Not tomorrow, but we need a soft deadline so that we can promote it in the right timeframe.
yeah, but if players come and are unimpressed by the old weapon models still remaining... turning potential regulars away... what will we do?
Hopefully they'll stay for the gameplay.
The old weapon models are hardly low quality. What was that quote about "people don't know a good game unless its graphics jump out of the screen and stab you in the crotch with a jousting lance".
I think the kind of people who think like that will be more than satisfied with the graphical updates that Empires has received since 1.071. New weapon models are nice, but not worth delaying a whole game for.
Would it be possible to just put a better reloading animation on the current BE pistols? (Not new models)
and please, make them sound more powerful. I use the NF pistol 1 way more because it sounds like it's useful (and yeah, because it looks cool)
It sounds like I can kill someone with it. The BE pistol sounds like I can slighly annoy someone with it.
